Are Ridgebacks “inside” or “outside” dogs?

Any dog, regardless of the breed, is part of your pack and will be distressed being away its pack (for example, being outside when its pack is inside).

This is bad when the pack is away from home, but much worse when the pack is home inside, and the dog is outside! The dog sees this as a punishment.

Of course, the dog needs access to outside areas to explore and relieve itself, but “storing” a dog outside permanently is unnecessarily cruel.
